From The New York Daily News -- September 25, 2010:
Christine O'Donnell, GOP Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite: 'Evolution is a myth' in 1990s clip
BY ALIYAH SHAHID
The hits just keep on coming for Christine O'Donnell.
A 1990s clip of the Republican Delaware Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite declaring "evolution is a myth," was released by comedian Bill Maher on Friday night.
O'Donnell had appeared as a conservative Christian activist and was a frequent guest on his "Politically Incorrect" show.
Maher replayed the segment on his HBO show "Real Time."
On the Oct. 15, 1998 clip, O'Donnell challenged the theory of evolution.
"Evolution is a myth," she said, starting to elaborate before Maher interrupted.
"Evolution is a myth?" he asked. "Have you ever looked at a monkey?"
"Well then why aren't they, why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?," O'Donnell countered.
It isn't Maher's first jab against the candidate, who was endorsed by former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
After her recent upset victory against nine-term Rep. Mike Castle, Maher played a 1999 tape in which O'Donnell said she dabbled in witchcraft while in high school. Maher threatened to replay more old clips of O'Donnell unless she appeared on his show.
Additional embarrassing footage has since surfaced leading up to her race against Democrat Chris Coons. The most often cited is her 1996 MTV campaign against masturbation, saying it was akin to adultery.
